Ricky Martin - Tony Awards Open With The Book Of Mormon Skit

Sunday night's (10Jun12) Tony Awards ceremony began with a hilarious take on hit musical The Book Of Mormon as the show's stars knocked on the dressing room doors of theatre favourites like Ricky Martin, Matthew Broderick, Cynthia Nixon and James Earl Jones in order to spread the word of God.
Jones opened his door with a photo of Darth Vader in his hand, pretending he had expected the visitor to be a Star Wars fan hoping for his autograph.
The skit led to the theme song from Matt Stone and Trey Parker's smash-hit comedy, which opened the 66th annual awards show, hosted for a third time by Neil Patrick Harris.
Harris then broke into a song and dance number, which featured appearances by Amanda Seyfried, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Broadway icon Patti LuPone.
The Tonys recognise excellence on the New York stage.
